Awakened before 7AM this morning by the earsplitting screaming of the site wide fire alarm. I mean, I’m glad it works, but jeebus.
Got dressed and went out to have a looksee out of the stairwell. The view is wider than the view from my patio. Once I hit the hall I could see water on the floor that obviously came out of one of my neighbor’s apartment.
Also standing around (besides the tenants) were a couple of firemen. I assumed that they had everything under control, so I went to the next landing down to get away from the noise.
Within 5 or 10 minutes, they had silenced the klaxon. One of the maintenance guys came huffing and puffing up the stairs. Stopped long enough to ask me if I was afraid? Afraid?
Uh. No. Awake would be the term I’m looking for I thought.
I wasn’t even nervous. I could see that HFD had things under control. No one was running around yelling the sky is falling. Nah. I came back in and made breakfast.
Weather me this. Weather me that.
Raining lightly now. Thundering. Dark in my apartment. Quite lovely today.
It ain’t nothin’ fancy
Ordered some artwork to go on the walls here. Once it’s all up there will be pictures. Unless I don't like it.
It’s so soft.
Found a couple nice tools to help with my course work. The one I’m liking right know? Snippets. Used like a repository for code. In a pile of different languages. It will save me from reinventing the wheel every time.
It seems to integrate with a couple different editors nicely. One of which I’m using, textWrangler,
Just unfortunate it didn't come with a few more snips… I’ll be giving it some guts soon.
One of the other pieces of software I’m using is Marked. It does more than this but I’m using it to display my code results. It updates whenever a save is performed in the editor. In my case, TextWrangler.
Back to my courseware.
Not progressing with this as fast as I could be. Been a while since I’ve done anything remotely challenging. Reckon it is time. I need to flex my learning muscle more.
Also bought a couple ebooks about applescript and automator. Like to see what I’m missing there too. It’s going to be FUN!
It’s the Weeeeeeeek Ennnnnnnd...
Who has plans for the weekend?
Not me. Not yet anyway. One thing is sure, I’ll be drinking less and enjoying it more… Or less…Or whatever.
